Voyagers of the Pacific Luau


Experience Hawaiian culture in an oceanfront setting overlooking beautiful Kailua Bay.

The Voyagers of the Pacific Luau reveals the history and culture of the Polynesian and Hawaiian islands with a captivating show on the shores of fabulous Kailua Bay. Through traditional foods, storytelling, song and dance, centuries of Polynesian history come alive. Grab your flip flops and sit back with a tropical drink and indulge in a celebration of Hawaiian culture under the stars. Come celebrate with us Big Island style.

As the sun sets on the legendary shores of Kailua Bay, the excitement of the Royal Kona Luau, Voyagers of the Pacific, presented by award-winning Tihati Productions comes to life. Spectacular ocean views, awe-inspiring sunsets and the gentle sound of waves softly breaking on the lava shore provide a breathtaking backdrop for an unforgettable journey. Your evening begins with a warm Aloha shell lei welcome and photo opportunities. Participate in arts and crafts demonstrations, watch the unearthing of the pua’a (pig) from the Imu (Hawaiian underground oven), and indulge in the all-you-care-to-eat Hawaiian-style buffet and full bar. The evening culminates with the breathtaking presentation of the stories, songs and dances of Hawaii and the South Pacific ending with the most dangerous dance in all of Polynesia, the Samoan fire dance (Siva Afi).
